Incredible work, everyone. These numbers are huge.
How huge? With 10,000 sites participating in yesterday’s net neutrality effort, a total of 304,993 calls got made. You made nearly half of them. Bravo.
Also…which one of you made that 61 minute call? What’d you guys talk about?
Feel like you’ve been transported back to dial-up today? Dozens of Internet companies are participating in a symbolic slowdown of their sites in a protest for net neutrality. Netflix, Etsy, and Tumblr (to name just a few) joined BattleForTheNet.com in its “Internet Slowdown Day.”
Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.
(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone could start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
